Detailed Product Description
Sydney, 1997, 1st edition. 331 pp, 73 color photos, glossary. Original black hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

Michael Groom, an experienced Himalayan climber, was one of only two summiters to survive from Rob Hall's expedition to Everest in 1996. He has climbed the four highest peaks in the world without oxygen. 

In May 10, 1996 the author was the fifth person that day to summit Everest. Krakauer was in that same party. Groom's personal moment of greatest difficulty likely occurred nine years before on his return from the summit of Kangchenjunga. The book describes his climbs of Changabang, Trisul, Annapurna 2, Kangchenjunga, Cho Oyu, Everest in 1991, 1993, 1996, Makalu, K2, Lhotse.
